Milena’s Bio

Dear PARENTS :-) !!
My name is Milena! I'm 33-year-old Polish girl.
I love being outside, coloring, crafts ,playing dress up, "running around", visiting parks, pools, zoos, libraries and all that stuff that makes kids busy during the day and far from TV:)
 
I have been working with children in school and after school since I was 17 years old ! Also, I have over 14 years of experience as a nanny and babysitter (Kids from newborn-15 years old).
 
In Poland I worked part time in preschool. I really loved my job, so when I came to USA I started helping in Chicago Private Catholic school (Immaculate Conception) with pre-kindergarten kids.
 
I graduated from Academy of Physical Education, I have my CPR and FIRST AID certificates renewed February 2015. I also have a Personal Fitness Trainer and Nutritional Specialist certificate and associate degree in Early Childhood Education.
I'm a easy going, punctual , very patient, hard-working and active person. For me, nothing is impossible :) Also, I'm very responsible and will follow your family routine/instructions without a problem.
I love to cook and because I'm a nutrition specialist, I always try to skip bad food habits in kid's life.
I have valid D.L and own transportation.
 
Working with kids is what I would like to do all my life, so if you are looking for someone like me please let me know :-) THANK YOU!!!
 
P.S References upon request ( I have 5+ great references from long term nanny positions + from on-call positions + reviews on sittercity.com )

Milena did a terrific job babysitting for our 7-1/2 month old. It was a last minute request and she was the first to respond. She showed up promptly - even with a 25 min drive. She was active and engaged with him and didn't get thrown when he was upset or crying. The only reason I didn't give her 5 stars is because we've only used her once. But we'd definitely use her again. She was lovely.

I would highly recommend Milena. She has watched our 20 month old little girl twice and both times our little girl seemed thrilled with her.
Milena was prompt and on time and easily kept our daughter entertained so we could leave without a fuss. She was pleasant to be around, and very clean. Each time we returned to the giggles of our daughter playing with Milena. She was wonderful and look forward to having her sit for us in the future!

Milena is a fabulous sitter! We hired her to take care of our one-year-old for several mornings a week. Not only is she always on time and very responsible, but she is energetic and patient as well.

Milena is warm, friendly and competent. She is also very accommodating and intelligent. Our six-year-old says, "I like that she was nice and she was fun. And I got to read books with her." Our two-year-old didn't even cry when we left even though she's in a clingy stage right now. We felt very comfortable leaving our girls with her. Thanks Milena!

- Wendy R.

Milena watched our 3 children recently. She was prompt for both the interview and job. My 4 year old (oldest) really enjoyed having her which is rare for her. She usually cries when we go out. We would definitely hire Milena again.

Milena is very agreeable and professional, punctual and fun. My 11-month old fell in love with her instantly! I have hired a few different sitters found through this site in the last month and Milena has already distinguished herself as my most reliable choice.

Milena is the first non-family member to babysit our 2 year old and we couldn't be more pleased. Our daughter cried when we left but when we got home, she was having lots of fun with Milena. She hardly noticed that we had come back! Milena was on time for both the interview and for the job. We have only used her once, but we look forward to having her sit for us in the future!

Milena did a great job watching our two boys. We'll definitely use her, again.

Melina has watched our 21month old twins a handful of times now. She is available when we need her, she is always early and the girls get very excited when they see her. She does a great job and we would definitely recommend her, and we will definitely use her again.-Katy and Tim

We asked Milena to babysit for our two children ages 5 and 3. She arrived a few minutes early, which was great, and really got along well with them from the start. She played with them while we got ready to leave, watched the bedtime routine, and read them their books before bed. She was also flexible when we asked her to stay a bit later. My daughter said she was looking forward to having Milena babysit again. Thanks, Milena!

- Kimberly R.

Provider's Response

Thanks Kim, I hope to see you soon :)

5

Milena was kind enough to sit for our 6.5 month old son and 3.5 year old daughter with just a couple of hours notice. She was an absolute delight - my husband, both kids and I all found her extremely likable.
I am SO glad we found her and can't wait for her to sit for us again.
Don't hesitate to have her watch your kiddies.

- Catherine W.

Provider's Response

Thanks Cathy! Hope to see Mary and Drew soon :)!

Milena was fantastic. The kids immediately liked her and we felt completely at ease leaving them under her care. We would definitely hire her again.

- Erin D.

Provider's Response

Thanks Erin, I can't wait to use your boys again :)

Milena was the first babysitter we had for our 2 year old twins that wasn't a family member. My kids started playing with her instantly, and didn't even get upset when we left! Milena is very sweet and trustworthy, and clearly has a nack for working with children. We will definitely reach out to her in the future!

- Provvi C.

Provider's Response

Your twins are adorable:)!! See you soon!

Milena has come to babysit for us twice. She is a very good communicator and responds to inquiries right away. She is also very punctual to her appointments. We have two boys - a 2 year old and a 6 month old. She did a terriffic job with them both. We look forward to using her many times in the future.

- Alyson S.

Provider's Response

Thanks Alyson :)! See you soon :)

Milena did a great job with our son! We were very nervous about leaving our son with a sitter that he did not know but Milena put us right at ease and our son was very comfortable with her right away. We would defintely use her again.

- Paula M.

Provider's Response

Thank you Paula, I can't wait to watch Oliver again :)

We hired Milena for one evening to sit with our 4 years old son when we visited Chicago from anoher state. She was just perfect. First of all, she was able to get in touch with our son the moment they met. We were able to leave our hotel room without his crying. When we asked him the next morning, he appeared to be satisfied with the experiense. No negative feelings about our deserting him. My wife and me also liked Milena. The last but not the least, she was very flexible regarding start and finish time. We had to change it on the last moment, and it was OK with her.

- Igor A.

Provider's Response

Igor, I do appreciate your kind words! Again, thank you!

5

Milena cared for our 2 year old on several occasions. She was punctual every time and respected our requests. We felt very comfortable leaving our child in her care. Our daughter enjoyed playing with Milena and her daughter and asked for them to come back on multiple occasions. We will definitely hire Milena again.

- Kevin O.

Provider's Response

Thank you Tanya. We can't wait to spend more time with Kasia:)!

5

Milena is great! She is friendly, warm, and I feel good leaving my son with her. She has been babysitting for us while my husband and I go on date nights, and having such a great sitter that knows what she is doing makes it easier to leave the baby.

- Rose C.
5

Milena is so terrific! We had her sit for our three children this past weekend and she was on time (actually early), attentive and enthusiastic with the children. She asked terrific questions and picked up on everything so quickly. The kids really liked her and we felt very comfortable with our first night with Milena. We will definitely have Milena on our sitter list! Highly recommend her!

- Rebecca D.

Provider's Response

Thank you Rebecca :-)!!!

I would highly recommend Milena. She was on time, super friendly and had her hands full with our 3 children who were full of lots of energy that evening. Milena handled their energy very well and was not at all worried about it. She is very calm and nurturing. She got all 3 kids down with their bedtime routine and the kids had a good time with her.

We've had Milena watch our ten year old son twice and she has been prompt, professional, responsive to texts and calls, easy going and our son has reported enjoying the time they spent together. We will certainly contact her again!

Milena sat for our three children--one of which is a newborn--and did a fantastic job. Very professional and completely competent. Great hire.

- Rebecca A.

Provider's Response

Thanks Rebecca and see you soon :)

We had a wonderful experience with Milena babysitting our 2 children (2 year old and newborn). She was our first babysitter, she knew all of the right questions to ask, and her tremendous amount of experience is very evident. She was on time, even early, and has a great, professional, but friendly and laid back style. Our daughter loved her right away. I'd recommend Milena to anyone.

- Jerzy C.

Provider's Response

Thank you guys!!! Love to see you again:)

5

Milena has sat our children (3 months & 3 years old) on several occasions. We think she is wonderful! Always on time, very reliable, serious about her job, incredibly nice and sweet with our children. We wish she was available during the day to watch our baby while we work. She has quickly become our go-to weekend sitter. Our toddler feels very comfortable with her and we know both children are in great hands in our absence.

- Jessica J.

Provider's Response

Thanks Jess!!

Milena babysat for our two girls (2.5 yrs and 6 months) twice in the last month. Both times, she was on time, friendly, and obviously very comfortable with kids. She asks good questions, and is very competent. We spent some time trying out a number of babysitters recently, and Milena is the person we will call first when we need a sitter.

- Courtney L.

Provider's Response

Thank you Courtney! It's been almost 2 years since I watched the girls (now its one more:)) for the first time and I'm thankful for the "relationship" we have :)!!

Milena did a wonderful job sitting for my 4 year old daughter this week. She was on time and detailed in her interview and early for her first time to watch my daughter. My daughter was very happy and said she had a great time. She was sleeping and the house was picked up when I got home. Milena is very prompt at returning calls/texts and I plan to use her again this weekend and regularly in the future. I would highly recommend her!

Thank you Trisha!!! I will see you soon :)

Babysitting

We hired Milena to sit for our 17mo old daughter on short notice. Milena arrived a few minutes early and was wonderful! We would definitely recommend her to other families!

- Frank G.

Provider's Response

Thank you Frank! I appreciate your kind words!

Loved her!

Milena watched my 2-year-old son and his friend (same age). She arrived early, was proactive about asking for emergency contact #s and a schedule for the children. She even got my son to nap, which can be a challenge sometimes. I highly recommend her and will be calling her for future date nights!

- Elaine D.

Provider's Response

Thank you Elaine :-)! See you in few weeks!

Super Sitter, Great Experience

We have used Milena once so far and plan to use her again to sit for our three month old. Milena has so much energy and passion for children. Having her own children, she understands infant care which is really important to us. She showed up exactly on time, even a few minutes early, even in the rain! We definitely suggest meeting Milena.

- Erin C.

Provider's Response

Awwww! Thank you Erin!! I will see you soon :)

Sweet, Professional, Confident

Milena watched our 18mo old daughter on Saturday night. She was very friendly and immediately engaged our daughter in play. She was professional, on time, tidy, and great to work with. I had pure confidence in her taking care of our daughter. We will certainly be working with her again!

- Kristi R.

Provider's Response

Thank you Kristi! It was pleasure to watch Brooke :)!

Milena is a pleasure!

Milena has only watched our daughter 2 times but she has been a pleasure. She was prompt in answering my emails and very punctual for the interview. She was on-time/early for both jobs, even for a last minute request, great with our daughter and very tidy - it is nice to come home and have everything in order! :)

Thanks again and she is deserving of her high ratings!

- Jamee D.

Provider's Response

Thank you Jamee for your kind review! :) It was pleasure to watch Olivia!

Great sitter for nights out

Milena is very reliable and always on time. She is so kind and sweet to our two children. My 22 month old son loves playing with her. We have a busy household with two small children (my second child is 2months old) and it is nice to know when we leave the house that the kids are in good hands. I have recommended Milena to friends and family. She is great!

Thank you Kerry for your nice review! :-)

Milena is a fantastic sitter

Milena just starting working for our family and she is wonderful. This is my first time leaving my children ages 2 1/2 years and 5 1/2 months with someone other than a family member. I completely trust Milena with my children and my oldest loves her. ( so does my youngest but he can't vocalize it yet!!) She is very prompt and get straight to playing with children when she arrives. She gives very detailed report of how the night went. Milena is also very quick when answering texts or emails which is always a positive! We look forward to her next visit! Thanks Milena.

- Sandy A.

Provider's Response

Thank you Sandy! Talk to you soon.

Last minute babysitter to the rescue

Milena watched our 4 month old daughter last weekend. It was a last minute request,so we didn't have a chance to meet before hand. I felt immediately comfortable with her. She asked a whole bunch of questions to make sure she was following the baby's routine. We will definitely be asking her to watch our little one in the future.

- Audrey L.

Provider's Response

Thanks Audrey, I am looking forward to watching CH, again :)!

5
Thank you Milena!

Milena has babysat once so far for us, and come over once before that just to meet our 17 mnth-old baby. Our baby who has some stranger anxiety right now was immediately so smiley with her, it made us feel secure. She was knowledgeable and seemed very responsible and clearly had the experience (plus having her own kids), so my wife and I felt no concern finally getting to go out on a date night together. We'll definitely be using her again soon!

- Jeremiah J.

Provider's Response

Thank you Jeremiah! I am looking forward to seeing G. again :)!

Wonderful babysitter!

Milena babysat our daughter (20mo) for approximately 9 hours on a work day. She was very responsive in answering my initial emails and questions, and not scared off by the fact that our daughter was a little sick.

Milena is clearly very experienced with childcare, our daughter responded positively to her right away and they spent all day playing. Our daughter barely noticed me when I got home.

Milena also gave me a detailed report of how the day went afterward, as well as updates throughout the day. I would highly recommend Milena for childcare, and we will absolutely contact her again for future needs.

- Kimberly S.

Provider's Response

Thank you Kimberly :)! We had a great day together!

Sitter

I liked Milena immediately from our interview. She is a responsible, trustworthy, friendly, and competent individual. She genuinely seemed to enjoy interacting with our 4 month old son. Plus, she was comfortable with our 2 large dogs. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her again as a sitter.

- Jennifer K.

Provider's Response

Jennifer, thank you for the kind words! See you in couple of weeks! :-)

Extremely reliable

Milena showed up to babysit even when there was a blizzard on 2/1/15, she never thought twice about canceling. She also expertly handled my 4 month old who can be very fussy. When we got home out baby was soundly asleep and very content.

- Michelle A.

Provider's Response

THANK YOU MICHELLE!! :-)

5
Terrific Babysitter!

Milena has cared for our three children (ages 8, 6 and 4) several times. She is extremely reliable, personable, and communicative. She's returning this week to babysit again and our kids keep asking "how many days until Milena comes back?" Highly recommend!

- Bethany C.

Provider's Response

Thank you Bethany!! Can't wait to see your trio again tonight! :-)

Amazing Sitter

Milena did everything right. She's punctual, professional, and pleasant. It was our first time booking a sitter for our 1st grader through sittercity and the experience couldn't have been better. Communication was great and Milena was a trooper to come out on a night with record cold.

- Jonathan W.

Provider's Response

Thank you guys!! :-)

Excellent babysitter!

Milena was the very first babysitter we used--she has taken excellent care of our newborn. I was very nervous about using a babysitter, but Milena but both my husband and I at ease. She has a natural way about babies, and she was totally okay with the fact that we were neurotic first-time parents too :). I would recommend Milena to anyone looking for a caring, extremely well qualified sitter.

- Melissa R.

Provider's Response

Thank you Melissa! It has been a pleasure watching R.

Excellent Babysitter

My kids are 6 & 8 and Milena watched them one Saturday evening for several hours. They absolutely loved her and asked when she would be coming back. She played games with them, colored, and was sure they got jammies on in time too. We will definitely ask her to sit for us in the future!

- Erin K.

Provider's Response

Thanks Erin! We had a great time :-)!

Working Mom of 2

Milena is a treasure. She has sat my 2 children several times over the past 6 months.

Most importantly my kids always look forward to her visits. She is fun, but responsible with natural child care instincts. I don't worry for a second when Milena is there, whether it is a school night and the children have homework, dinner, baths and bedtimes, or date night with movies and games going on while we are out. Milena can handle it all. Furthermore she is reliable, on-time and keeps up excellent communication.

Provider's Response

Thank you Lou!! I will see you guys soon :)!

Babysitting an active preschooler

Milena did a fantastic job with my 4 1/2 year old son. From the minute she walked in she made him feel comfortable. He had a great time and everything went smoothly. I know she is a great sitter as he keeps asking when she is coming back.

- Linda W.

Provider's Response

Thank you Linda! It's always pleasure to watch Myles! :)

Fantastic babysitter

Milena immediately put me at ease having a complete stranger watching our 4.5 year old boy. She was on-time, friendly, take charge and my son really enjoyed playing with her and really looked forward to her coming the second time she babysat. She also took care of our dog. We definitely look forward to her babysitting again soon.

Awesome Nanny

We love Milena! She is great with our baby and 5 year old. Attentive, kind, caring, and fun! She gets the kids out in the fresh air every day and is so helpful! Our little one has been having some separation challenges and she is so gentle, giving extra cuddles when needed during naptime

- Liz A.

Provider's Response

Thank you so much for your kind words Liz!!

Great nanny!

We contacted Milena early last year when our daughter was born but she was not available at that time. When our present nanny left us on short notice we contacted Milena again hoping she was available and luckily she was! Our daughter transitioned nicely with Milena only after meeting her once before she was on her own with her. Milena is professional, reliable, and very considerate of our needs and truly helped us when we were in a very bad situation having to find a nanny in less than 2 weeks. We hope she will be with us for a very long time! Thank you so much Milena!

Thank you Judy! It't was my pleasure :)!!
